Kennedy brothers likely killed by CIA on behalf of Israel: Scholar


Press TV

Former US senator and attorney general Robert F. Kennedy, like his older brother, former President John F. Kennedy, was likely assassinated by senior CIA agents with the involvement of Israel, an American scholar says.

Sirhan Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian immigrant, was convicted of murdering RFK and sentenced to death in 1969. His sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1972. He remains incarcerated for the crime.

RFK’s death in 1968 has been the subject of widespread analysis, similar to the 1963 assassination of his older brother, John F. Kennedy.

Bobby Kennedy was assassinated during celebrations following his successful campaign in the Californian primary elections while seeking the Democratic nomination for US president.

The 42-year-old presidential candidate was fatally shot shortly after midnight at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

Various experts have ascribed a varity of motives to CIA involvement in the assassination of both Kennedys. The secretive nature of the CIA and its reputation for high level political assassinations in the 1960s has made it a plausible perpetrator for the murder of the Kennedy brothers.

“The assassinations of the Kennedy brothers were largely carried out on behalf of Israel,” Barrett told Press TV on Monday.

“John F. Kennedy was dedicated to shutting down Israel’s nuclear weapons program and was killed because the Israelis, specifically [former Israeli prime minister David] Ben-Gurion believed that this was an issue of survival for Israel” he added.

“Robert Kennedy’s convicted killer Sirhan Sirhan, the patsy who was chosen to be presented to the public as the supposed killer who was actually hypnotized and had no idea what he was doing there…was used for propaganda purposes by the Zionists who murdered both of the Kennedy brothers,” Barrett said.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of RFK, says he does not believe Sirhan had carried out the assassination and believes a second shooter did it.

In an interview with The Washington Post published this weekend, Kennedy said he had spent months reviewing autopsy results, police reports and interviewed witnesses who were there when his father was gunned down.

He told the newspaper that he also met Sirhan, 74, incarcerated in the massive Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility, a California state prison complex in the desert outside San Diego.

  1. It’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room when it comes to JFK’s and RFK’s assassinations and that JFK signed his death warrant when he signed Executive Order 11110. I think Bobby was killed because he would have been elected. Heck Gov. Wallace got shot because he was going to split the vote. It’s hard to imagine how great this world could be had Jack Kennedy lived. His older brother was groomed for greatness but died and was awarded the Navy Cross. JFK was the next man up, perhaps not so well groomed, he started fighting against the Dulles brothers and making moral decisions when elected POTUS. He was no choir-boy but having affairs with beautiful women sure beats the pants off of what has been lately going on with our current list of degenerates. Camelot held the hopes and dreams of millions of Americans. When he was shot, the tears flowed.

  2. Jackie O was a CIA Operative and was in on it too. There are other deaths connected to JFK like Ms.Kilgalen. These thugs do whatever they want, kill whomever they want. They use MK Ultra programming and all the alleged shooters look drugged and out of it…. and media continues to lie
    to us…and yet we do nothing as citizens. Very little or no resistance. I am just not all that proud to be an American like l was when l enlisted in 1981.

  4. I wish Kevin Barrett would stop writing articles that quote himself and refer to himself with flattering descriptors such as ‘scholar’. Geez. Articles such as this undermine the credibility of Veterans Today.

  5. The worse these international gangsters in Israel spit in our faces the more we give these crooks. Americans must be insane and belong in an insane asylum. Congress is insane. The Israel lover president is insane. Israel even did 9/11/01 with the aid of traitors Bush, Cheney and the four star generals. The response by the corrupt fools in Congress to 9/11 was to gang rape our constitutional rights with the illegal Patriot Act.
